Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC endorses Delegate James Edmunds for House seat

Delegate James Edmunds has received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 60th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

"I am once again humbled to accept this endorsement by my peers" exclaimed Delegate Edmunds when notified of his endorsement for the fifth straight campaign. "As a "hands-on" farmer myself, I am fully aware of the challenges farmers face on a daily basis and I know that those challenges are only going to continue to increase. I am honored to be in a position to help with those added pressures. The information provided to me by Virginia Farm Bureau representatives during General Assembly session is invaluable when making informed decisions that will support the agricultural and forestry industries in Virginia," stated Mr. Edmunds.

Delegate Edmunds is among 94 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House seats. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.

Del. James Edmunds announces re-election bid

Posted in News

Del. James Edmunds II on Friday announced his plans to seek re-election to a fifth two-year term in the Virginia House of Delegates.

First elected in 2008, Delegate Edmunds represents the 60th District in the Virginia House of Delegate and covers all of Charlotte, Halifax and Prince Edward Counties, and a portion of Campbell.

“For the past eight years, I have had the honor of representing the 60th District in the Virginia House of Delegates. I remain committed to the values and traditions we hold so dear here in rural Southern Virginia,” Edmunds said.

“As our State continues to grow, rural influence continues to diminish. During my term, I have forged respectful relationships with legislators in the more urban areas of our state which allows me to more effectively represent our area and to work for the best solutions possible in any given circumstance,” he added.

I hope that you will take a moment to reflect on those blessings next Thursday before we sit down to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast or turn on a football game.

Last week millions of Americans went to the polls and elected a new President. Again, we are fortunate to live in a country where we have the freedom to vote for the candidate of our choice. Now my prayer is that we will all join together and work towards healing the wounds of this country.
